At Risto Sports, I use the term "Butt lifting" to describe a very common technical mistake. Many new athletes will have a tendency to start their lift by raising their hips and not using their legs. Starting with the hips and butt causes the bar to be too far out in front of the lifter. Hence, instead of pulling and extending straight up with the bar in the second phase of the pull, the lifter must pull the bar back towards themselves, then wildly bang the bar off their hips/pelvic area.
